[Solved] IPv6 does not work

Hello Forum,

I have a little time and I want to test IPv6.
-- According to customer postings in the Internet some months ago, my provider does not support IPv6. On the other side there are public news that the provider works on IPv6 support.
-- Shortly I have updated my TP-Link TL-WR1043ND to LEDE 17.01.4. I have removed the provider router and LEDE is directly connected behind the modem. I got a public IPv4 address, but it seems no IPv6 is possible. Results of test-ipv6.com:

-- If I do a ping -6, localhost is pingable and the DNS returns IPv6 addresse, but ping is not possible:

-- I have added rules for the guest WLAN (see tutorial), beside that I havent changed the firewall rules.
-- IPv6 routing: https://i.imgur.com/90IMQ0O.jpg
-- Dhcp and Dhcpv6 are running on wan: https://i.imgur.com/vHwn40u.jpg

Can someone give me a hint what I can do to get IPv6 running/what I can test next?

Thanks a lot


AFAIK, your WAN / WAN6 is already configured to acquire an IPv6 address, if your ISP supports it; if you do not have a public IPv6 address, I would guess that your ISP still does not support it. But you can browse the logs, to be sure.

If you insist on having IPv6, and your ISP does not support it, you can experiment with a IPv6 tunnel; for example, I have been using Hurricane Electric Free IPv6 Tunnel Broker for a while.

Thanks for the answer :slightly_smiling_face:
I have a vpn provider. I will try to create a tunnel.

Ensure that your VPN provider issues a subnet of IPv6 addresses.

If they don't, I would suggest using tunnelbroker.net

They even provide the UCI commands to install and configure the tunnel properly.

I have a tunnel from vpntunnel.com and IPv6 does not work. The support acknowledge that currently only IPv4 is possible. I will give the tunnelbroker a try. Thanks a lot. :slight_smile:
